DarkWave Studio is a modern, high performance virtual studio for the creation of electronic music. DarkWave features ease of use for beginners and high quality for studio professionals creating complicated projects. It allows users to connect various machines included with DarkWave Studio in addition to machines that adhere to Steinberg's VST effect and VSTi instrument format in a virtual studio environment limited only by your imagination.
A pattern editor with a piano roll interface is included to allow the creation of patterns of music for each instrument with ease. A sequencer allows patterns to be arranged into a song, allowing reuse of patterns to rapidly create a song with repeated elements.
DarkWave Studio can also be used live with the MIDI Input machine which allows for playing of virtual instruments with a MIDI or USB music keyboard.
Multitrack recording is simple with DarkWave Studio's multitrack hard disk recorder which allows any number of recording machines to be placed in the studio and then controlled from the hard disk recorder interface. Recording can be synchronised with the start and end of a song by starting recording of all tracks simultaneously as playing the song by the click of a button in the sequencer.
DarkWave Studio comes with the following built in machines:
ES SpatialVerb: Room modelling reverb unit with advanced circulant feedback delay network to minimize ringing caused by most reverbs.
ES DGenR8: Virtual analog drum module made to sound and function just like the classic Roland TR-909.
ES AntiAlias: Up to 32 times oversampling digital filter to enhance the quality of the recording.
ES BassHead: Virtual analog subtractive synthesizer with 2 bandlimited oscillators, 3 low frequency oscillators, 2 multimode filters, seperate amplifier and filter envelope generators and many controls to adjust the sound.
